Product Description

Sixteen-year-old Cole s (Michael Angarano) struggle for independence is put to the test as his family implodes around him. Older brother Terry (Tom Guiry) is descending into a life of drugs and crime and his father, Desmond, (Brendan Gleeson) spends his days in a fog of alcohol and self-pity.

The one thing keeping young Cole s head above water is his love of sport. A talented athlete, Cole must overcome self-doubt and family indifference in order to get into the state championships, but to get there he must make a life and death decision that will change his family forever.

3.0 out of 5 stars CRY LIKE A GIRL, DRINK LIKE A MAN 13 July 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
This is a film about family drama with a little bit of humor tossed in. The movie appears to have all the pieces of a decent film, yet afterwards, I couldn't help but think, "Is that all there is?"

Cole (Michael Angarano) is a decent kid who attempts to lose himself in baseball. Unfortunately the family drama becomes a distraction. Mom (Melissa Leo) works for social services. Dad (Brendan Gleeson) drinks and looks for jobs in the paper. He has a secret. Terry (Tom Guiry) is the messed up older brother who has become a small time criminal. He hates his father. The sister, Kathleen (Emily VanCamp) is pregnant. She has moved out of the house. She was thinking about an abortion, but mom's guilt trip prevents it.

The film progresses slowly so there are no surprises. The family, which should have come together long ago as a family, now attempts to do it after disaster has hit. The title, "Black Irish" didn't play into the film very well. This could have been anybody's family. I did not like this odd family film as much as "Another Happy Day."

Parental Guide: F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.
